A career in mediation?  Hallchurch speaks to The Telegraph

Leading mediator and partner at Buckinghamshire law firm B P Collins LLP, Nick Hallchurch, explores the qualities needed for a successful career as a civil mediator in The Telegraph today (13 June).

As courts and the Government now fully endorse mediation as their preferred way of resolving disputes before they go to an expensive trial, Nick provides his top tips for those looking to begin a career in dispute resolution.

As a CEDR-accredited mediator and co-founder of the mediation group Middlesex and Thames Valley Mediators (MTVM), which provides mediators for County Court cases, Nick has acted as lead mediator in over 50 mediations with a high success rate for settlements.

Chambers UK has also identified him as a named mediator for the last five years, describing him as "firm but appropriately sensitive".  Interviewees describe Nick as a "great host" for commercial mediations. He elicits particular praise for his "tough but fair" approach and "sensitivity to power imbalances between parties."
